A Program for Latino and Jewish Students

The Jewish Latino Teen Coalition is a joint effort fully funded by the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona through the support of private donors and a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation, to foster the importance of cultural awareness and political advocacy in youth today. It is a unique program across the country.

The group is comprised of a set of diverse, multi-gendered, multi-ethnic teens that commits to months of education and weekly workshops, building knowledge and skills for advocacy and leadership. The teens explore a self-selected compelling policy issue each year and then engage with local leaders in workshop dialogues.

A trip to Washington, D.C. is the culmination of their study that has a meaningful purpose to make a change in the world. Along the way they become civic minded activist and develop leadership skills.
